Choosing the correct rug size
The question of the correct rug size, however, cannot be answered in general terms, because the following aspects have to be considered before buying a rug:
Which function does the room fulfil?
How big is the room?
Where and how is the furniture placed?
When choosing the size of the rug, many rely on their visual judgement. Often, however, rugs are bought which are too small, are lost in the room and appear anything but harmonious. But even a large rug is not ideal for every room, as the room can quickly become overloaded and disproportionate. In case of doubt, you are best advised to choose a slightly larger rug.We will give you tips on how to find the optimal rug size.
In order to determine the correct rug size, it is advisable to measure the area that the rug should cover beforehand. For this, the furniture should be arranged as it will be placed on the rug later. Now, the width and length of the new rug can be easily measured. The edge of the rug can be marked on the floor with painter's crepe or newspaper, so you get a good overview of the area the new rug would cover in that position.
Important: Test the painter's crepe in an inconspicuous location beforehand to make sure that no residues are left behind!
